Vancouver, BC - Cypress Development Corp. (TSX-V: CYP) (FWB: C1Z) and Skyharbour Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: SYH) are pleased to provide an update on their ongoing joint venture exploration program for their Cypress (80%) Skyharbour (20%) Broulan Reef Project located in the heart of the Red Lake gold camp where total gold production exceeds 20 million ounces from the two mines operated by Goldcorp.
The Broulan Reef property adjoins, on strike, to south of the Bruce Channel and Finn gold zones discovered by Gold Eagle Mines. These gold zones were acquired by Goldcorp when it purchased Gold Eagle Mines for $1.3 billion in September 2008. The Broulan Reef property is bordered on all sides and in all directions by Goldcorp's land holdings.

Cypress, as operator, announces that drill hole BR08-02 has now been completed to a depth of approximately 2600 metres. The geological features and structures evident in the Balmer assemblage noted to the immediate north on the Gold Eagle ground is now known to exist in quantity on the Broulan Reef property. An extensive zone of silicification, brecciation, and sulphides has been encountered in the hole near the north boundary of the Broulan Reef boundary. The location of this major zone suggests that it is the extension of the mineralized system referred to as the Finn Zone. The Finn Zone lies on Goldcorp's Gold Eagle property some 150-200 metres north of the Broulan Reef boundary.
With the geological information being derived from the BR08-02 hole at this time, Cypress will continue to drill the hole a little deeper. When BR08-02 is completed to depth, the Company will prepare the mother hole for the drilling of offset (daughter) holes by establishing a series of wedges down hole to deflect the hole to a desired direction. The process of establishing the wedges will start immediately upon completion of the mother hole.
Cypress and Skyharbour are very pleased with the progress of the drill program to date. The companies are confident that the "model" of the Bruce Channel geology is very evident underlying the majority of the Broulan Reef property. The model includes geological structure, Balmer assemblage rocks, the strike of the formation, dip of the new Gold Eagle deposit, and the success of the diamond drillling to date by Cypress / Skyharbour. The companies hired Chibougamau Diamond Drilling (Quebec) in October 2008 to complete a major deep penetration drill program on the Broulan Reef property. Cypress' Geologist, Mr. David Busch is currently logging and splitting all of the cores from the BR08--02 and all cores are being submitted to TSL Laboratory in Saskatoon. Assays are pending. A great deal of excellent geological information is being derived from this drill hole.
Deposits in the Red Lake gold camp typically have a long vertical extent reaching in excess of 2600 metres in some cases. It is still early days for the Cypress / Skyharbour deep penetration drill program on the Broulan Reef property.
Cypress has also contracted to Tech Directional Services to provide a down-hole surveying service encompassing the total length of hole BR08-02. This process will enable the Company to be completely satisfied as to the exact location of the entire drill hole. This survey is to be completed immediately.
Cypress and Skyharbour continue with their drill program exploring for the extension of the Bruce Channel and Finn gold zone discoveries.
